‘When I started the group I wanted to be taken seriously and be understood by those in power so they understood my point of view. I realised not only that they needed to listen and understand but that I needed to do the same. Unfortunately I have also realised that change takes time and effort and the power balance between us and them will always be mismatched.’ Brian, Leeds Poverty Truth Commissioner.
